  1. Another great tool to help with allergic rhinitis symptoms is the use of an isotonic nasal wash such as the Sinus Rinse, Neti Pot or Navage. Use twice a day to wash out that pollen and other allergens.

  2. Maybe those who have had COVID are suffering from higher allergies as a result of their infection….But that wasn’t even considered in this piece.

    There are more factors to allergies than pollen counts.

  3. Interesting observation. I just recovered from Covid and my allergy symptoms seems much worse this year. I was also searching for more information about that topic, Were you able to find any information?

  4. I am 88 years old and for the past 2 winters I have been sneezing like crazy and my eyes are constantly watering. I find if I take Zyrtec once a day it helps a lot but my eyes still bother me. Thank you so much for the information .

  5. This article is a relief to read because it confirmed that it’s not all in my head! I’ve been suffering from allergy symptoms for years, and it’s good to know that I’m not the only one experiencing this. This was really interesting and informative, and I appreciate the useful tips provided for managing allergy symptoms. The fact that allergy symptoms can be confused with COVID-19 symptoms is definitely a concern, and it’s making me a little nervous about allergy season this year. Thanks for shedding light on this important topic and confirming that my allergy symptoms are real!
